Tell Me Something Tuesday is a a weekly discussion hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings where we discuss a wide range of topics from books to blogging.
This week’s topic: What are the books that will always remain on your shelf?
I have a loooooong list of favorite books, but there are some of them I know I’ll never part from. Here they are:
The Gabriel Series by Sylvain Reynard
The Gabriel Series will always stay with me. This series is very special to me for both personal and obvious reasons. The love story between Professor Gabriel Emerson and Julia Mitchell touched me deeply, and these books have and will always have a special place on my bookshelf.
Easy and Breakable by Tammara Webber
Lucas and Jacqueline’s story is unique in its genre and it deals with a very important topic, that more books should talk about, in my opinion. It’s a wonderful story for so many reasons, a story I’ve read several times and I’ll never part with it.
The Sempre Series and Monster in His Eyes by JM Darhower
Whatever JM Darhower writes is a masterpiece. The Sempre Series is amazing and Monster in Hies Eyes likewise. Now I can’t wait for Torture in Her Soul, which, I’m sure, will always stay on my bookshelf, like all the books by JM Darhower.
A Hundred Summers by Beatriz Williams
A poignant and emotional love story that I find myself rereading often. A Hundred Summers is that kind of book you can’t stop thinking about.
Books by Judith McNaught
One of my absolute favorite Authors! Judith McNaught is simply one of the most talented and wonderful writers out there. All her books are NYT Bestsellers and they have enchanted thousands of readers, like myself. McNaught is my to go author, and all of her stories touch even the most hidden chords of the heart. That’s why I’ll always carry her books with me.
Well, I think there’s no introduction needed. I have a whole shelf dedicated just to Shakespeare, and I’m very possesive of that shelf. 😉 No matter how many times I read his works, I always get something new out of them, every single time.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
All those who’ve been following my posts here on Bookish Temptations know I’m HUGE fan of Jane Austen and I adore all of her books. I read Pride and Prejudice for the first time when I was 15, and it’s stayed with me ever since.
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
Another classic I absolutely love. I think that Heathcliff has always been a misunderstood character, and there’s so much of him that’s underrated. Wuthering Heights is not only about the troubled story between Heathcliff and Catherine; this book has so many layers that are worth discovering.
Faust by Johann Wolfang von Goethe
Goethe is one of my favorite German authors and I consider his Faust to be one of the greatest works in literature. It’s so very powerful and thought-povoking…If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend you check it out.
Pensées by Blaise Pascal
Pascal is a philosopher I’ve always admired. His “Pensées” contain so many thruths and there’s so much wisdom in them. I never tire of rereading them.
The Lord of The Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
One can draw so many life lessons from these books. The Lord of The Rings is a Masterpiece with a capital M.
The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer
The Twilight Saga will always have a place on my bookshelf. I read the books when I was 18, and a whole new world opened up for me. So many things changed thanks to twilight, and I’ve made so many great experiences because of these books. This series will never be taken down from my bookshelf! 😉
Now, I’m curious…what books will always remain on YOUR shelf? 🙂
